If you don't mind the different order of the output then:

$ perl -le'print for keys %{ { "ZBBBCZZ" =~ /((.)\2*)/g } }' Z ZZ BBB C

    Excellent excellent excellent.
    A solution to the order problem would be to use an order-remembering hash (e.g. Tie::IxHash). Or you could pluck out the even-numbered elements of the list, e.g.

    $_ = 'abbbccddde'; @a = /((.)\2*)/g; @a = @a[ grep { not $_ & 1 } 0 .. $#a ];
    A word spoken in Mind will reach its own level, in the objective world, by its own weight

    If you don't mind the different order of the output...

    ... and also don't mind the possible loss of some intended output:

    # OP's solution, given a different input: $ perl -le'print $1 while "ZBBBCZZCZ" =~ /((.)\2*)/g' Z BBB C ZZ C Z # jwkrahn's solution for that input: $ perl -le'print for keys %{{"ZBBBCZZCZ" =~ /((.)\2*)/g}}' Z ZZ BBB C
    (Not to mention that the OP approach wins at golfing. :)

    Sorry if I miss something, but your solution based on a hash, like all hash based ones seems aimed at uniqueness... but that doesn't seem a requirement as of the root node...
